What are the poetic devices in 'the legend of the northland'

Dear student,

Some of the poetic devices in the poem 'A Legend of the Northland' are:
- Alliteration: 'being faint with fasting'
- Simile: 'children look like bear cubs'
- Enjambment: the continuation of a sentence without a pause beyond the end of a line, couplet, or stanza.
' And the nights are so long in winter
That they cannot sleep them through'
- Repetition: 'by boring, and boring, and boring'
